Pop3SslMode Property
Gets or sets how the component should establish TLS/SSL connection with the mail server.

Namespace: MailBee.Pop3Mail
Assembly: MailBee.NET (in MailBee.NET.dll) Version: 11.2.0 build 590 for .NET 4.5
public SslStartupMode SslMode { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: SslStartupMode
One of SslStartupMode values specifying if and how the component should establish TLS/SSL connection with the mail server. The default value is Manual which means the connection won't be established in TLS/SSL mode unless the developer manually calls StartTls method.

AutodetectPortAndSslMode property may cause MailBee to automatically enable TLS/SSL for some well-known hosts or ports even if SslMode property has its default value.

Note Note
Not all mail servers support TLS/SSL functionality. Also, some servers support only newest TLS versions (see SslProtocol topic for details).
This sample connects to the mail server on regular port 110, then switches the connection into TLS/SSL mode using STLS command, logs in the mail account and downloads the first mail message in this account.
// To use the code below, import MailBee namespaces at the top of your code
using MailBee;
using MailBee.Pop3Mail;
using MailBee.Security;
using MailBee.Mime;

// The actual code (put it into a method of your class).
Pop3 pop = new Pop3();
pop.SslMode = SslStartupMode.UseStartTls;
pop.Login("jdoe", "secret");
if (pop.InboxMessageCount > 0)
    MailMessage msg = pop.DownloadEntireMessage(pop.InboxMessageCount);
    Console.WriteLine(msg.Attachments.Count + " attachment(s) in the message.");
